I was going to order one of these but the listing I saw said that it was not compatible with models that had the built in CD changer as it uses the connection for an external CD changer. My 2004 Touring does have a built in CD changer.I just installed a Honda Acura 98-05 Bluetooth Hands Free Car Adapter Kit (MBUSB3) from Grom Audio in my 2004 MDX. It took about 30 minutes. You just need to remove the trim panel around the radio, remove 6 screws to remove the radio, plug the adapter into the back of the radio, plug the microphone cable into the adapter, mount the mic and put everything back together. It pairs and connects easily with our Android and Apple phones.
Sounds like the USA SPEC is broadcasting a signal that jams the TPMS. eww.I added the USA SPEC BT45t-Hon3 device for BT feature using the XM link. I removed it because the thing really sucked when identifying the title of the song when I used Pandora/Spotify. it kept switching back between the title of what was playing on XM and what was on my phone. Also, the main thing that annoyed me was that it kept triggering the warning light for my TPMS. I verified the HON3 device was the issue by removing it and not seeing the light coming back on. When I reattached it, the light would appear again. This happens anywhere around 15-20 minutes of driving. Even though I know nothing is wrong with my tire pressure, I was just annoyed by the light being there.
I would like to add a new radio, but I don't want to deal with the hassle of what is involved since I have the Nav + Bose, no RES.
The USA Spec is designed to have XM piggybacked into it, so you can still use XM. I have a year sub to it for free anyways. XM still works fine when you put it on XM2 while the USA Spec uses the BT feature when you're on XM1.Sounds like the USA SPEC is broadcasting a signal that jams the TPMS. eww.
But you left the XM plugged in? GROM wouldn't work at all until I disconnected the XM
Thank you do you know I can get it on my 05 MDX non Navi can you tell me how??You can't use hfl to play music.
Any audio shop can install for you a Bluetooth module or If your mdx has the dvd entertainment system in the back , there should be RCA connections on the arm rest of the 3rd row seats and from there you can attach a device that connects Bluetooth to RCA or for like $10 you can buy RCA to 3.5mm jack and just attach it to your phone. They sell these on ebay.
Take a look at this post I made about how I added ab audio jack to my 2004. I think the same company also sells similar product with bluetooth.Thank you do you know I can get it on my 05 MDX non Navi can you tell me how??
